If you break their terms, the Partner Venue may ban you and subsequently we may ban you from all of Heka’s Partner Venues.
- We will always respect our Partners’ right to refuse entry to anyone who does not comply with their terms.
Is there any other reason my Voucher could be cancelled?
- If we are unable to accept your Voucher request, we will inform you of this in writing and will not charge you for the Voucher. This might be because of unexpected issues with our Partners which we could not reasonably plan for.
Can the Partner cancel my Voucher?
- Some Experiences may be dependent on weather conditions and you should check with the Partner for information relating to postponement or cancellation. In the unlikely event that one of our Partners needs to cancel an Experience they will contact you.
- The Partner may also stop you from accessing their premises or attending their class if you do not comply with any terms that they have provided to you

If we break these Terms, we are responsible for the proportion of loss or damage you suffered that happened as a foreseeable result of our actions, or because we failed to use reasonable care and skill. We are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not “foreseeable”. By “foreseeable”, we mean either it is obvious that it will happen or if, at the time the contract was made, we both knew it might happen.
- We don’t exclude or limit our responsibility to you if it would be unlawful to do so. This includes liability for death or personal injury caused by Heka’s negligence, fraud, or breach of your consumer rights.
- We are not liable for business losses. We only provide you with a User Account for domestic and private use. If you make any purchases with your User Account for any commercial, business or re-sale purpose we will have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

- Changes to these Terms. As Heka grows and improves, we might have to make changes to these Terms. We will do this by uploading the latest version with a date confirming when they went live.
